Horse For Sale

Belle

Status: Broke to ride Western (Kid middle Intermediate - Adult intermediate.  Was beginners horse but learned to cheat on beginners. Good with most traffic, will carry a flag.) Breed: Morgan Color/Sex/Height: Red Chestnut / Mare / 14.3hh Foaling Date/Breeder: Approx. 2001 (Vet. estimate) / unknown Registration No.: None Sire: unknown Morgan Dam: unknown Morgan Price: $2,500.00 I hurt my back Aug. 2016 It had not healed well, so need to cut back on work load. Buyer pays registration transfer fee, and all shipping costs/requirements.  We vaccinated annually in March for rabies, tetanus, E-W sleeping sickness, and West Nile.
BELLE we acquired in August 2014, coming from Minnesota, hoping she would work for our handicapped daughter. Our experienced horse Vet estimated her birth year as 2001.  She was trained for two hand or plow reining only on a mechanical hackamore and did not rein well that way, very heavy pull to get her to turn, so was sent to our favorite trainer for basic western riding, as our daughter learned to ride with neck-reining.  But, we know now she is beginner sour, not for our handicapped daughter.  She tries to get away with not cooperating with beginner riders.  She gets head strong or lazy, and refuses to cross water with a beginner on her. An adult has been riding her since.  Belle now rides with either a plantation or short shank mullen bit (instead of mechanical hackamore).  She knows to stand in cross ties now, she also now neck reins, but she is soft mouth and does not appreciate hard jerks on the bit.  But do not put a tie-down on her, she is very sensitive to that.  Her beginner riders never taught her how to side pass, so if one asks her to do that, she is not cheating, no one taught her yet.  She has a nice fast walk, and very little spook. Several things she was never trained, like fly spray, bathing, and electric clippers, but we continue working on that.  She handles most road traffic very well.  For the farrier she is fairly good, not a kicker but will lean off and on, and sometimes try to pull her hoof away, having her in cross ties for hoof trimming is helpful.   However, in the riding department,  an intermediate adult or a middle intermediate child who is aware, and can convince her of their leadership,  she goes well for.  Often just saying in a strict voice “Belle cut it out” and she will behave well once she knows she is not the leader.  She has been very good around traffic, will carry a flag, and will lead out on a trail if desired.  Belle should still be a good choice for trail riding by other members of our family and friends, and especially for those who are intermediate riders that are not meek or overly afraid.  She has been doing very well in drill team.  She loads, rides, and unloads nicely in a slant load trailer, and normally ties well to the trailer.  She is familiar with ranch barb wire fencing for her summer pasture.  For more information, please Contact Us.
